Hughes Network Systems, LLC and Inmarsat recently presented the Hughes 9502 global-use terminal, the first BGAN (Broadband Global Area Network) M2M (machine-to-machine) satellite communications terminal in the world to feature Hazardous Locations Accreditation.
The new Hughes BGAN terminal has successfully finished tests with accredited laboratory Met Laboratories, Inc., which cleared the Hughes 9502 for operation in hazardous locations that may have explosive gaseous atmospheres.
Hughes designed and produced its 9502 terminal for global use over the Inmarsat BGAN L-band satellite service. The new satellite communications terminal enables highly affordable and reliable end-to-end IP data connectivity for a wide variety of customers, including global energy customers who deploy SCADA networks in hazardous environments.
